Just for giggles, does the 22 Niro EV offer the DCFC as an "option" or do all of them include it as a necessary feature to a modern day EV?
It is standard on all US-market '22 Niro EV. I can't speak to past history.

I don't even remember this thread much since I don't visit this site much but since OP mentioned '17 Bolt, on '17 Leaf, DC FC inlet was optional. See specs tab of ... -press-kit. It was part of the charge package on the S trim.

Ditto for '18 Leaf and '19 Leaf , see specs tab of ... -press-kit and ... -leaf-plus (not standard on non-Plus S). ... -press-kit - '20 Leaf, DC FC port also not standard on non-Plus S. ... -press-kit - also not standard on '21 non-Plus S.

For your hypothetical situations listed in March, the answer is easy, don't take a BEV w/o DC FCing for that.

Re: 2017 Aftermarket DCFC

I am sorry you have decided to repeat all of your same claims as before.

So, I will repeat my responses:

In January, 2017, the Chevy Bolt EV was introduced as the ONLY car (other than a Tesla) with an EV driving range in excess of 200 miles per charge.

Before that; most EVs drove in the 80-100 mile range.

So the history of DCFC's before January, 2017 is irrelevant.

Even your Niro EV comes with a non-optional DCFC.

It was a mistake for GM to ever produce the Bolt EV without a DCFC, a mistake that, like the OP, others who are new to EVs and charging may be a very costly mistake for them!
